Monster Strike making $4.2 million a day in sales

Japanese developer Mixi has revealed that its co-op action RPG, Monster Strike, brought in $378 million between April 1 and June 30 - that's $4.2 million a day.

Newsbrief: Japanese developer Mixi has a certified cash cow on its hands, with the studio revealing through its latest financial report that its free-to-play co-op action RPG, Monster Strike, brought in $378 million in sales between April 1 and June 30 - that's $4.2 million a day. 

Japan-based game industry expert Dr. Serkan Toto's analysis of the figures puts the game's success into perspective, highlighting that nearly 100 percent of Monster Strike's sales have come from Japan alone. Believe it or not, Mixi is actually in the process of shutting the game down in China. 

Now, with the game showing no signs of slowing down, and with Mixi planning a "large-scale" marketing push in Q2, comparisons to GungHo's super-hit, Puzzle and Dragons, are becoming increasingly common.
